"One case is reported in which a ramrod(3) is supposed to have transfixed the abdominal cavity without injury to the viscera:(4) CASE 162.--Private Henry Manypenny, Co. D, 76th New York, was wounded at Wapping, July 23, 1863, and admitted to the 2d division hospital of the Third Corps. Surgeon C. K. Irvin, 72d New York Volunteers, reports that a ramrod perforated the abdomen through the left groin. The symptoms were not extremely grave, and the patient was sent to Mount Pleasant Hospital on July 30th. The wound of emergence was in the left lumbar region. The diagnosis is recorded with brevity rather than elegance: "ramrod driven plumb, through the guts." There was no serious peritonitis or other evidence of visceral lesion, and the man was returned to duty, cured, on September 23, 1863, as reported by Assistant Surgeon C. A. McCall, U. S.

Matteson died on August 3, 1894. His obituary in the Oneonta Star the next day read, in part:

Chas. B. Matteson, residing at 397 Main Street, had been engaged in cleaning the brickwork on the new Normal building  and was at work yesterday morning upon the rear wall of the right wing, at the height of the third story. He was upon a swinging scaffold and whether one of the grappling irons slipped and afterwards broke or broke at the first will never be known. At any rate it gave way, precipitating him to the ground, a distance of 40 feet. He struck upon a pile of loose boards. He was unconscious when assistance reached him, but rallied somewhat when restoratives were applied. Dr. Meigs Close was called and the sufferer carried to the home of Mrs. Hammell nearby. On examination it was found that a leg was badly broken and internal injuries sustained. The accident occurred shortly after noon and in a little over an hour he was dead. ... Seated on the bed, convulsed with grief, was the widow, surrounded by six weeping chldren, ranging in age from 14 to 2 years. The scene beggars description. ... 

After the war he was made a representative of the American Board of Foreign Missions upon the coast of Africa, where he spent three years. Later he resided in Georgia, and for a few years he has resided in Oneonta. Mr. Matteson by trade was a mason.

Descendents of Lyman Miller's contributed the following: 

My great grandfather, Lyman Miller was a member of company "D" joining in (September or) October, 1862. He was wounded in the left thigh the first day's battle at Gettysburg, very near where the monument stands today, which left him with a lifetime limp requiring a cane most of the time for the rest of his life. He married his wife Mary (Hamilton) on February 6, 1867 in Cohoes, NY, according to a December 5, 1941, interview with her in the Passaic, NJ, Herald News. They had three children - a son, Charles, who died in infancy, and two daughters, Jessie and Nan. He died in 1916 in the Old Soldier's and Sailor's home in Bath, NY.

 

He went on to receive a second wound in the left arm at the battle of The Wilderness in 1864. After recovering from this wound, he was captured at the battle of Poplar Grove Church in October, 1864. As a private, he and some of his friends were sent to Libby Prison, in Richmond. Because this prison was primarily for captured officers, he was soon transferred to Salisbury Prison, NC. He was then released on parole in March, 1865 and transferred to a veteran unit stationed in Washington, DC. While there, he was in Ford's theater on April 14, 1865 and was witness to Lincoln's assassination.

He and his wife later met and had conversations with Theodore Roosevelt during his presidency. His wife, Mary, worked in a famous millinery in Troy, NY in 1860-1861 at the age of 14, and as one of their best seamstresses personally helped create the bonnets for Mrs. Lincoln and Mrs. William Seward for the 1861 inauguration.

Hiram Morse is listed on the East Homer Cemetery Civil War Monument - photo at right by Mike Brown

Morse is mentioned in John Worrell Northrop's "Diary of a War Prisoner":
"May 30th: Hiram Morse of Co. F, 76th regiment, admitted to the hospital today. He sickened on corn bread, lost appetite, became helpless from diarrhoea and attendant fever; has wasted rapidly to a skeleton, helpless in body, crazed in mind. He has been kept alive by crust coffee and a little black tea we happened to have, since he got here."

Hiram Morse was a brother of Adolphus Morse and Lewis Morse, both in the 76th NY.  A genealogist at the Morse Society says that the 1850 census lists a large Morse family in Homer with nine children: "According to the 1850 census (Homer, Cortland County, NY dwelling 683, family 746), Hiram W. was 5 and Rodolphus/Adolphus was 7. So looks like Hiram may have lied about his age."

Per personal communication from David Smith: John died on September 10, 1910, and is buried in Sec. H, Row 25, Grave 5, Bath, NY, Soldiers and Sailors Home. He also says, 
"
John's name was
 really Cyphrian Bougie born in Canada, probably St Timothee near Montreal in 1838.  Changed his name to John Mosher. Also served with his brother Frank Mosher  or Mosier, aka Frances Bougie and another brother. The other brother was supposedly William A. Mosher  (according to pension records of John and Frank) but the pension of William  A. Mosher does not fit. There is a Henry Bougie buried in Oswego that served  in 147th but not listing in the rolls. John had his thumb shot off in the battle of Cold Harbor and was discharged  at Chester PA Hospital. He lived in Bath Home for about 30 years. Frances  got shrapnel to the face but served out his term."

Photo at right, from 2003 e-Bay auction. , shows Mason Myers and his brother in law, Robert Armstrong, soon after they enlisted. Information with auction indicated that both men were from Orwell, NY, in Oswego County, and that Armstrong was in Co. G of the 14th US Infantry (Regular Army). 

The e-Bay listing also has this information: Myers enlisted on September 23, 1861. He is described as being 5’ 8” tall, with a light complexion, dark eyes and light hair. He was a farmer by trade. Based on the above physical descriptions, the seller noted "I believe Armstrong is the soldier on the left and Myers is on the right."

Both Myers and Armstrong lost legs at the Battle of Gettysburg - Myers lost his right leg on the first day, Armstrong his left leg on the second day. The photo at right is from a June 11, 1910, Syracuse Post-Standard newspaper article, identifying the men as (left-right) Myers, A. J. Potter, and Armstrong, "lifelong friends and members of [GAR] Post 282". The caption indicates the photo was taken at a GAR encampment. It says that Myers and Armstrong "are neighbors, and even wear the same size of shoe. Now, when their footwear gives out, they buy one pair of shoes between them, and Mr. Myers wears the left shoe and Mr. Armstrong the right." 

After being wounded he was treated in the Court House Hospital in Gettysburg from July 5 -27, Seminary Hill Hospital from July 28-September 5. From there he was sent to Chestnut Hill Hospital in Philadelphia. Based on research from the Orwell town historian Myers was born in 1842, both men died in 1927 and are buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Myers in section 4 and Armstrong in Section 9. I have found no evidence that Myers was ever married.
